See why I love the beach?

Last morning at the beach, so Snowy and I were out for our walk by 6 am (thank goodness
that's just going off DST).

Lights still on at the pier

The trawlers are already out with lights on

Monarch butterfly migration at the NC beach

We saw a few Monarchs when we arrived on Sunday...but they're all over the yard here today! I first tried getting
some shots from the deck because the bushes are probably 10-12 feet high. But I wasn't satisfied, so i went down
in the yard. All these shots were taken over my head--anywhere from a foot or two to at least four or five.

We have a beautiful Carolina blue sky today..and this guy was willing to pose, somewhat shyly.

These two were doing what they need to do...it takes four generations of Monarchs to make the round trip migration.

This one was definitely feeding on the flowers

And this was the best shot I could get of open wings.

At the Vancouver Aquarium

Just a few shots.




Beluga whale--no dorsal fin, presumably an adaptation to make swimming beneath ice easier

Do you see the seahorses?

There was a small Amazon jungle exhibit that included wildlife other than fish.

oh my gosh! I am amazed!

Congratulations to Binkie The Clown and Mira! I really loved both those photos!



And thanks to Solly Mack and Mira for helping out alfredo during a very tough time.


alfredo, I had to scratch my head trying to think of something for this contest. Ended up
going back in my photo archives--way back to 2009 when we went to Peru--because I remembered
the turn-out at this high point on the road from Cuzco to Puno and Lake Titicaca. With some cropping
and minimal post processing doctoring of the original single shot I took of the handicrafts laid out on the rocks, I figured that
would have to be my entry. It sure was a lot of fun revisiting that trip through the photos, too!

OK, I'm on it! My husband and I are leaving Tuesday on a trip, but I will have the October theme and information posted
before we go!



OK, I claim Summer Camouflage, but I tell you those darn deer have been hanging around all week

wondering if they were going to win a prize!



I've been photographing deer in and around our yard for several years. We get a lot of them!
Half an hour ago there were FIVE of them in our front yard chowing down on azaleas!

See?

Caught three in this quick photo through the window...and then when they scattered another shot of them
up the hill from the house. Do you suppose they're expecting residuals?
